Argument

After all evidence is tendered at a trial, Crown and defence are entitled to make submissions ("argument") to the Court. In jury trials this is called the closing address to the jury, or simply "the closing." The term also refers to submissions by counsel on legal issues that arise in relation to any matter before the courts.
